Valour-IT: So much more than a laptop

A couple of years back, I received this note from the fiancee of one of the few Valour-IT recipients based in Germany.


I just want to tell you a quick story: Last Christmas (2 months after my fiance got of the hospital), we got a Christmas tree and decorated it.

We were missing the star to put on the top of the tree, so we used the little angel you sent us in a letter.

I just thought you should know that. And, that we have promised ourselves the angel will be used every Christmas on our tree :-)

How much is it worth for this couple to look at their Christmas tree each year and know that their fellow Americans love and appreciate them?


Valour-IT. Much, much more than a laptop.

Soldiers' Angels Germany is proud to be blogging once again this year for the Valour-IT Team MARINES. You may also donate in the name of one of the other service branches here. But all donations go to the same place - a fund providing laptop computers and other electronic devices to improve the lives of recovering wounded service members. If you've already contributed, thank you.
